    This is very painful-

    Ok. I recently started renting a server from another company, which I will not name, at least for now. Anyway, after only one month, I am now having some serious issues with the company. So I am examining the possibilities here.

    I have never used the "transfer" feature in WHM and I'm relatively new to access this deep (root).

    When I use the transfer function, will this copy databases and all that too?

    This is very important, and I have to make this move, because people are depending on me to have their sites running, and I depend on my vendors to deliver. They are not, which puts me in a very bad dilemma.. Please- If anyone knows this information respond so I can reply to MY CUSTOMERS of what my intentions are.

    Thank You:) Support Ticket Number:

    Learning can somtimes be a painful thing. ;)

    It is not the responsibilty of your DC/Server provider, to teach you how to be a SysAdmin and/or use WHM. There is a WHM manual available for download -- somewhere at -- and if doing one-at-time site transfers under 2 or 3 GB, it usually goes pretty smoothly.

    When it works, the Transfer feature will "copy" everything related to that account, but does leave out some things -- especially if a Reseller account.

    Best way to learn is to do it. As it is a copy function, the old site is still functional and you get a chance to see exactly what was copied over. :) Support Ticket Number:
